It is unfair to expect the ANC Women's League to turn against ANC deputy president Jacob Zuma simply because he was once accused of rape, the organisation said yesterday.
The league's secretary general Bathabile Dlamini said it was wrong for people to continue associating Zuma with rape and ignore the fact that a court of law had found him innocent.
"Those who feel the league should not have nominated him because of the rape case want us to be part of a kangaroo court. The case went to court and everybody knows the outcome," she said.
The league on Monday nominated Zuma as its ANC presidential candidate after a meeting in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
Its decision to endorse Zuma surprised many, especially given that most of its leading members had openly declared their support for President Thabo Mbeki.
Dlamini rejected claims that the meeting was tense, with strong disagreements over the nomination issue.
"People simply made their choices, there were no tensions at all," she said. - Sapa
